Hi! The new two-week challenge beginning today at Sugar Creek Hollow is "Make Your Own Background" (using stencils, masks, gelli plates, sprays, etc.) and it is being sponsored by Molossi: Maximizing Original Ideas. At their online store you'll find a unique selection of card making and scrapbooking supplies that will surely inspire you!
Molossi provided the SCH Design Team with various items to use for this fun challenge. I really love the vintage car unmounted rubber stamp they sent me, as well as the cool chipboard pieces, so I decided to make a masculine card. My background is made up of stencils, Heidi Swapp Color Shine spray, Ranger Distress Inks, and paper scraps. I also embossed a purple background strip and sanded it. I used the Color Shine and distress inks to color the chipboard padlock, fleur de lys, circular gear and strip of barbed wire--FUN. Here's my card:
I had a blast using these cool elements from Molossi; and I hope you have fun designing your own background card, too! Thanks for stopping by.
